Spanish passport photo requirements 2021

The requirements for Spanish passport photography are very strict, it’s recommended you use a professional photographer when applying for your new passport.

The image must be 40x30mm, shot on a white background, with a 5mm gap from the top of the head to the edge of the photo, also from the side of the head to the edge of the photo. The image size can also be between 40-53mm x 30-40mm with the subjects head measuring approx. 70%, this measurement is taken from the bottom of the jaw to the top of the head, not including the hair.  It could be useful to use the different overall size if the subject has a voluminous hair style, this will help with giving the 5mm gap around the head.The subject must be looking directly at the camera, front facing, no hats or masks, religious headgear is allowed, but should correctly show the face.  Glasses are allowed but no reflection or glare from the lenses is allowed, the eyes must be clearly visible, we recommend you remove your glasses for your image to be guaranteed to pass.

The group at Jefferson Studios have lots of expertise in photo duplicating and reclamation, we will take the first photograph whether it be in shading or highly contrasting, examine the photograph into our PC framework which would then be able to be reestablished or replicated without any problems. When we have your photo in an advanced configuration we would then be able to modify the splendor and complexity, evacuate harm, expel wrinkles and fix any tears or torn edges, the final product will be tantamount to the day the photograph was first taken.

 

Charges for this sort of work differ between each photo and the degree of fix required, for a citation please get in touch with us and we are glad to help.

Restoration on old damaged prints

Restoration on old damaged prints

Sometimes you look at old photographs and memories rush into your head. We love images and the memories they hold. We like to remind ourselves of the great feats that we and our families have achieved, or remember our ancestors through a small frame in time. Sometimes these great memories can be washed away by the past.

That old picture that captured the beautiful moments often see cracks, tears, stains and discoloration with which the glory of the photograph slowly fades.

We make sure that your memories are preserved forever, we will be able to fix almost any sort of damage that your pictures may have sustained over the years. Why not have those pictures restored and keep those memories alive.

 

Bring Old photos back to life by having them digitally restored.

Depending on how much restoration needs doing cost can be anything from £5 – £20 But we will give you a final price on seeing the print.

We will also email you the digital file for you to store and send to friends and relatives.

Even very badly damaged prints can be restored. As long as enough detail remains, it doesn’t matter if the picture is in several pieces. We begin by selecting each individual piece and reposition the broken pieces, shifting them back into place like a jigsaw. When all the pieces are lined up, finish off by retouching the seams then fill in the gaps. All this is done digitally causing no further damage to your original print.
Once the image is restored we can also print them for you, at the great prices listed below

Coping prints that need no restoration

If you have lost your digital images or negatives and just want a copy of a print we can do that also. As there is no restoration work needed you just pay the print cost as listed below.
